0800 Follow Me

If you have an 0800 number but work in several locations, sign up for 0800 Follow Me and you can always answer the toll free calls – wherever you happen to be working from.

0800 Follow Me is a subscription-based 0800 service which you can use to change the answering point of one or more of your 0800 numbers using a touch-tone phone.

It’s ideal if you often need to change the terminating number of your 0800 service. For example, if you work from offices in several locations and you wish to have your 0800 number following you depending on where you're working.

How much does it cost?

There's a one-off set up cost of $35.00. After that, you'll pay $5.00 a month for the service. All prices exclude GST.

How does it work?

0800 Follow Me terminating numbers can be almost any New Zealand number - other than another 0800 number - choices include mobile, Message Manager, pagers and faxes.

You dial the 0800 Follow Me access number to use the service and, after entering your PIN number, you arrive at the main option menu.

Follow Me features:

  • Access from a touch-tone phone. Make your own changes when you like from anywhere in New Zealand
